so im thinking about saving the top end of my blown motor, and getting a used bottom end and rebuilding a new engine over the winter. Do you guys have any idea how much it will end up costing me? Im doing the rebuild myself

Im in boston, how expensive was it to rebuild your engine

Well I haven't rebuilt any of them them lol but a rebuild kit will probably cost around $300 to $400.
All the engines I have are still sitting in the engine bay haha

One is my DD with about 217k on it and it's an auto.
The blue one is the victim for my manual swap, which will be happening in the spring.
The silver one was my parts car to fix up my car after I got into an accident before the summer. When I do the manual swap, the motor from this car is going to be swapped into my DD because it only has 126k on it.

gotcha, ya i really want to rebuild it, and just have a new engine for the summer

plan on spending ~500 just for all the seals and gaskets..then whatever other parts you need (IE water pump, oil pump, ect)

Well once I do all my swapping and stuff, I'd be more than happy to sell you one of my engines.
It won't be until the early spring, but you could easily rebuild it before the summer comes!

the engine rebuild gasket kit is about 250 bucks. comes with every gasket. you will spend about another 300 in new bearings, main and rods, water pump, belts, and piston rings. i have done this on both the 5S and the 7A. i have a really good thread with over 100 pictures on the 7A build. follow that. the 5S is very close.
